Let us Pray (2021.01.20)
January 20, 2021
Will you pray with me today?
O Lord, our King, may Your kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. We commend our nation to Your merciful care. Grant to those who have been elected into authority to govern with wisdom; May the fear of knowing You guide their understanding. Help those in leadership to remember that they have been called to serve the people as lovers of truth and justice.
God, we confess our many failings; that too often, we fail to be the kind of citizens You call us to be. Help Your churches in America – those who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior – to seek Your ways, to follow the Lord Jesus Christ, to stand firm in our call to stand in the gap to the point of dying for the sake of others. For Lord, we remember: "If there is any encouragement in belonging to Christ, if there is any comfort in His love, if (the churches in America) have a share in anything common, then let us agree with one another, to have the same love, to be one in spirit and therefore in the way we think and act. In doing so, may our labor – the work of Your servants – bring to completion one another's joy. Help all of us to not merely look out for our own personal interests, but for the interests of others. Help us to have this attitude in ourselves which was in Christ Jesus" ( Phil. 2).
Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
